TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona, Arizona State and Northern Arizona released their tuition proposals for the 2018-19 academic year on Friday, March 16.

While most students at the state schools won't see an increase due to the guaranteed tuition program, incoming freshman and graduate students will have to pay more.

UA said 95 percent of its undergraduate students are in the tuition guarantee program, which locks in the costs for up to eight semesters.

UA's complete proposal is available HERE, Arizona State's is HERE and Northern Arizona's can be viewed HERE.

The Arizona Board of Regents will host public hearings from 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27.

The list of meeting locations is:

  • University of Arizona: Tucson Old Main (Silver and Sage Room),  Sierra Vista Academic Technology Building (B153).
  • Arizona State University: Tempe Memorial Union (Turquoise Room), West Verde Dining Pavilion Multipurpose (Room 104), Polytechnic Peralta Hall (Room 145), Downtown Student Center at the Post Office, (San Carlos Conference Room).
  • Northern Arizona University: Flagstaff Babbitt Administrative Center (BAC 206), Yuma AZ Western College, Academic Complex (Room 111).

One of the meetings will be live streamed HERE.

University presidents will present their proposals in person to the Board of Regents on Thursday, March 29.

The regents will vote on the tuition proposals Thursday, April 5.
